Browner, a native of Sylmar in Southern California's San Fernando Valley, was arrested on drug charges in October and for allegedly making criminal threats in September.
According to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office, Browner was accused of breaking into his ex-girlfriend's apartment before chasing and dragging her and then attempting to smother her in a carpet.
Eight years is significantly less than the initial life sentence that Browner was facing, as his no contest plea resulted in charges of robbery, burglary and false imprisonment being dropped.
